I’m still in the first 12 hours of 2012 and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the days have to surprise us with. I came across this article that said the number 1 resolution this year is to spend more time with friends and family. That shouldn’t even be a resolution. I try and do that everyday of my life. There was a period of a time that I didn’t have any friends. And to be honest, it really wasn’t that long ago. When you have a baby at a young age and the rest of your friends at the time don’t, you begin to lose the care you once had for anything other than that tiny human. Your friends will love your baby. It’s a baby. Who doesn’t love babies? They just won’t be interested in talking about the shit and you won’t know what else to say. So, you lose contact with everyone. In turn, losing your connection to the world you never thought would slip away so easily.
It’s only been a recent 2 years that I’ve had a handful of great friends. But I have laughed and cried and loved more in the past two years than the rest of the times I can remember. I make sure the ones I surround myself with are all about loving and living life, and having the best time all while having the worst. What the hell would I be doing with my life if I didn’t have these people to share it with?
